Thanks to everyone who came along to our Autumn Gathering on Saturday 6th October in Clandeboye.   I hope everyone got home safely and was not too tired!  We feel it was a  really  important collaboration for us to share a gathering with our  fellow movement in the North, NIFSA, and key to our development on the island of Ireland  going forward.  We look forward to continued sharing and collaboration together over the next 10 years!
Thanks to everyone for your  energetic and whole hearted participation on the day and for all the sharing we did together. We hope that you feel renewed and supported by IFSA as you develop your thinking and practice around  Forest School over the coming year.
We shall post some images of the day shortly!
